  • [9] Michael Owen thinks Luke Shaw would be a good fit for United

    "I think it's always good to keep progressing up the ladder and to play at the highest standard. And once you have had the experience that Luke Shaw has had in the Premier League, I think you are certainly ready for that challenge now. Having had the first-team experience he has, and now going to a World Cup, I'd say he is more than ready to join a really big club - if Southampton let him go." United have obviously had a poor campaign by their standards and we talk about rebuilding, but it has only been one season - there is still an awful lot of quality there. They are a huge club with a huge stadium, and I presume they are going to get a huge manager as well. I wouldn't have thought they will be coming seventh again next season, put it that way - I think they will be right back in the mix. But they are going to have to buy quality players like Luke Shaw, and particularly in defence, because they have lost Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, and there is talk about Patrice Evra as well. They are going to be hard to replace, but someone like Luke Shaw would go a long way towards that. So the only losers would be Southampton - but then again, I'm pretty sure there will be a huge fee involved!"
